Quote:Hi Frank, Here is my Sirius dome located about 250 miles NW of you. This is about a weeks worth. Depending on temperature and wind speed sometimes it will not build up quite so much. We have not had a clear night in quite some time and thats the way it is in a lake effect area, but the rest of the year I like it! Dave
